(LOS ANGELES) -- George Hamilton recently underwent a procedure to treat skin cancer, according to E! News.
A rep for the 71-year-old famously tanned actor says, "He has been in the sun for years and years and years, and has managed to escape sun damage. This was something that several months ago he was told he would have to have."
The rep says Hamilton is "absolutely fine."
Hamilton will star in the touring production of La Cage Aux Folles beginning this October.
